Back Button, Add to Favorites, Break out of frames

Just like your browser’s back button, the following script allows the user to press a button to returns the user to the previous page. Paste the following code where you want the button to appear on your page:

<FORM>
<INPUT TYPE="Button" VALUE="Previous Page" onClick="history.go(-1)">
</FORM>

If you would rather use a link, paste the following code where you want the link to appear:

<a href="javascript:history.back(1)">Previous Page</a> 

Break out of Frames

To stop your page being framed by someone else, which isn’t a common practice any longer thankfully, put this event handler into the body tag of your document:

<body onLoad="if (self != top) top.location = self.location">

Add to Favorites

Although this only works in Internet Explorer, it’s still worth noting. Paste the following code below on a single line where you want the link to appear:

<a href="javascript:window.external.AddFavorite('http://www.yoursite.com', 'Your Site Name')">Add to Favorites</a>
